Kichaa cha Mbwa ni ugonjwa unaosababishwa na virus wajulikanao kama Lyssavirus kutoka katika jamii ya virusi ya Rhabdoviridae. Ugonjwa huu ni miongoni  mwa mgonjwa yanayoambulizwa kati ya binadamu na wanyama (zoonotic diseases). Binadamu huambukizwa ugonjwa huu kwa kuumwa na mbwa au mnyama mwingine mwenye ugonjwa.

Virusi wa kichaa cha mbwa wanapoingia mwilini husafiri kupitia neva za fahamu hadi kwenye ubongo na kusababisha maradhi makali nap engine kifo.

Watu wanashauriwa kujingika na maambukizi kwa kuwaepuka mbwa wanaozurura hovyo hasa wanaoonekana kuwa na dalili za maambukizi. Inashauriwa wafugaji wahakikishe mbwa nap aka wao hawazururi ovyo mtaani na pia kuhakikisha wanapatiwa chanjo ya kichaa cha mbwa kila mwaka.

Endapo mbwa mwenye dalili za kichaa (kutokwa mate mengi mdomoni, kushambulia na kuuma watu, wanyama au vitu ovyo, na kuwa mkali) inashauriwa watu wasimsogelee na watoe taarifa kwa wataalamu wa mifugo mara moja.
